INSTRUCTOR: Sanjoy Baruah. (Click here for instructor's office hours, which are held at FB 134)

TEXT: We will be using the text by Professor Jack Snoeyink, Reasoning and Writing in the Mathematics Underlying Computation, copies of which are made available to you in pdf format.
The UNC Undergraduate Bulletin description of this course is
Introduces discrete structures (sets, tuples, relations, functions, graphs, trees) and the formal mathematics (logic, proof, induction) used to establish their properties and those of algorithms that work with them. Develops problem-solving skills through puzzles and applications central to computer science.
SYLLABUS: Here is the syllabus for this offering of COMP 283.
PREREQUISITES: MATH 231 (Calculus of Functions of One Variable - I) or MATH 241 (BioCalculus I)
SPECIAL NEEDS: If you are entitled to extra accommodation for any reason (such as a disability), we make every reasonable attempt to accommodate you. However, it is your responsibility to discuss this with the instructor during the first week of the course.
I encourage the use of Piazza for class discussion. The system is highly
catered to getting you help fast and efficiently from classmates (and occasionally, the
TAs and the instructor). I encourage you to post your questions on
Piazza and participate in discussions there. (The instructor and TAs
will monitor these discussions, but for the most part not participate
-- the idea is to use it as a forum for students to hold active
discussions and help one another.)
